Community Provision and Social Services
Compass has two Care Centers and an Edu Care-Center in the Edenvale area. Our homes are filled to capacity at this very moment. We house woman and children from underprivileged, sometimes abusive backgrounds. Single mothers, fathers and children come begging for shelter and a decent plate of food on a daily basis. Compass also feeds over 163 people daily, which includes staff and outreach programs. This is over and above the woman and children that we already accommodate in our care.
In order to give them a "second" chance in life, this would involve upgrading of skills, assisting with unemployment, such that they become productive members of society. While remaining in our care Compass has a responsibility to look for resources to assist our beneficiaries. This includes raising funds daily for food, nappies, baby formula, rentals for our homes, school fees, medical, toiletries, clothing cleaning etc.
